    Question Can I Unlock a T-Mobile Pearl 8100 to work on Nextel Service?

    Advertisement



    I just got a T-Mobile branded blackberry pearl 8100 from a friend because he upgraded and had an extra phone. The problem is, T-mobile gets terrible service where I live. Nextel is by far the best around these parts. So I was wondering, if I go to the trouble of unlocking my phone, will I be able to use a Nextel sim card for service? Also, will Nextel give me a sim card if I bring in a T-Mobile branded phone?

    I would appreciate any feedback....I'm new to the smartphone thing, but I need it for work and I figured I could save a little by taking my friends phone. But if I have to go and buy a Nextel Blackberry, then I have to do what I have to do. Obviously, I'm hoping to be able to use this one.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ unfortunately you can't use it on Nextel. Nextel is CDMA and tmobile is GSM.
